GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) - A man whose conviction for his role in the abduction of an 89-year-old who was locked in her car trunk for two days was overturned has been indicted on new charges in the same case.

A spokesman for the Delaware Department of Justice said Friday that 20-year-old Rondaiges Harper of Bridgeville was indicted Monday on charges of unlawful imprisonment and conspiracy. Harper, who was freed on Aug. 15 after the state Supreme Court overturned his conviction, was released on $5,000 unsecured bond.

Harper is one of four young people charged in the March 2013 kidnaping of Margaret Smith. One of them testified that Harper, who was not present when Smith was kidnapped, heard her in the trunk, opened the lid, saw her, and closed it without letting her go.
